Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update", before "Sarah Palin", Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.
She has seen both of those dreams come true.
At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon - from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.
Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.
Includes special, never-before-solicited opinions on breastfeeding, princesses, Photoshop, the electoral process, and Italian rum cake!

"I hope that's not really the cover. That's really going to hurt sales." (Don Fey, Father of Tina Fey)
"Do not print this glowing recommendation of Tina Fey's book until I've been dead a hundred years." (Mark Twain)
"Hilarious and insightful. Laugh-out-loud funny - oh no, a full moon. No! Arrgh! Get away from me! Save yourself!" (A Guy Turning into a Werewolf)
This was a really good read because it gives you some insight into the life of a groundbreaking female performer/writer/mother/queen of the mumbled phrase.
As a fan of Tina Fey, I knew the book was going to be funny (and it didn't disappoint). But after listening to her narration of her own material (both alone and with my family), I can't imagine how this book was meant to be anything other than an audio book. It's pitch-perfect and hilarious.
Some of the stories were ok, but she sounded like she was reading somebody else's life off a cue card the entire time. I couldn't even get through the audiobook.
Mom, Science Teacher, Kid at Heart. My 52 mile drive to work gives me time to finally stretch my brain. Audible has been a wonderful treat! Thanks Bob!
It would depend on the subject of the book.
It would depend on the subject of the audiobook.
Tina Fey was fine as a narrator.
This book read like a SNL episode: many topics-unrelated-most eliciting a chuckle.
This was my first audiobook and I found it easy to listen to. I have ordered a few more to try.
Funny, smart, real
Made me really laugh out loud.
I especially liked that she read her own book, added special touches for audible listeners (like the entire SNL Palin sketch instead of a transcript), and used her own inflections and voice to convey meanings a reader might miss.
Recommend you LISTEN to this, although the PDF photos are quite a treat.
I don't think I would read another book by Tina Fey. If it was a fiction story it might be good.
I would have liked to hear more about her being a mother.
I really enjoyed her voice as a reader. She should become the voice for other audio books.
Yes, because of Tina being the narrator.
Tina, of course!
This selection was well worth using an Audible credit
